I have 4 books that were requested from me on July 4th. They all have "Waiting for Member" underneath the date of 07/04/09.

When will they be put back in the FIFO line for the next sender? I know I shouldn't but I am getting impatient.

Connie if they were requested by you, not from you, they should be passed on to the next member after the 9th. A member has 5 days to respond to a request.

The member may have delayed accepting the request if they cant get to the PO or the postage isnt in their budget until payday. Hopefully they will accept the order tomorrow and you will soon have your books.

The person who has your books on their wish list have 48 hours to request your book. If 2 days pass and they haven't requested it, your book will pass to the next person in line.

Oops, sorry about that. Cheryl is right. :-) I hope you will soon get the books that you requested!

I'm in both situations.  I have a book in the 48 hour holding pattern - 3rd wisher!  I have nine waiting for the member to say yea or nay on my request.  Two will time out today, big sigh.
